Rollo at Play
by Jacob Abbott
A lively collection of stories about Rollo and his every day adventures in growing up in 19th century rural America, that have delighted generations of children. At five Rollo enjoys playing in the woods, whether he's building a wigwam, setting a trap for a squirrel, or rescuing a baby bird. Yet events don't always turn out the ways he wants - the squirrel escapes, the blueberry expedition is delayed by rain and, when it finally does happen, he encounters trouble on the mountain. Yet Jonas and his parents help Rollo through all his difficulties, sometimes by aiding him directly but mostly by prompting him to think about his behavior and come to a resolution himself.  Ages 7-10
